Rachelle Ma Belle

This post is dedicated to my good friend Rachelle Tyrell who is one of my most prolific models.  She is someone who has been there from the beginning of both my teaching and photography career.  Not to mention she is someone whose advice I highly regard and whose personality I adore.  Rachelle is a straight shooter, a tough talker, a go-getter, a family gal, a loving wife, and a loyal friend.  Over the years I have often relied on our phone calls and subsequent meetings to get me through difficult times or decisions.  She has a great instinct for human nature and knows that it is better to stay true to yourself and be gutsy than take an easier, less rewarding path. 

We met when we were completing our Bachelor of Education degree at the University of Ottawa in 2000 and since 2001 Rachelle has lived in B.C.  I am used to our visits when I see my parents for special gatherings and she is family to me.  Rachelle flew out from Victoria to Montreal to be a bridesmaid at my wedding in 2005 and is now getting ready to start a family of her own.  Please enjoy these photographs.  They are organized chronologically from our clubbing days in 2001 to the present.

    She’s hot! How do I meet, marry and finally impregnate this goddess?

    That’s a funny one!

    I think all of the above have been already done by someone!
